Why have I never known about beer bread?! It is the simplest bread recipe ever!!! I love the smell of baking bread but hate the hassle. It's rainy and cold here today so I wanted to bake bread. I have no idea how I stumbled across this recipe, but it rocks!
Becca's Beer Bread:
3 cups all purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar
12 oz. bottle or can of your favorite beer. (for a lighter beer flavor use a light colored beer)
Preheat oven to 350. Place sticky mixture in a loaf pan (9x5") that's been sprayed with baking spray. Or you can butter and flour the pan. Bake for approximately 40 minutes to one hour. I baste it with butter twice through the baking process - yummy. I recommend watching it the last 20 minutes.
This is actually a GREAT recipe to do with kids. It's so simple. My kids loved mixing the dry ingredients together. Then I took it and added the beer which is when it got really sticky. Then I plopped it into the pan and stuck it in the oven. Yay for a yummy rainy day activity --that was mess free!! And it turned out delicious!!!
